I have a cupcake wedding tier to do in June and the bride loves the light, fluffy grocery store texture. I have tried several different searches on the web in general and here on CC and cannot find what I think she wants. I'm sure there's got to be one somewhere. Can someone help me? Thank you!

Just go to the grocery store and buy the icing from them, most grocery stores sell the icing in buckets. It's whipped. Ask them for a sample and you will see the difference.

Thanks. It just seems so... not good if you know what I mean?! Wonder if it'd work to add flavorings etc? Have you tried that?

yes I have, you can flavor it and color it as well, or you can get them to color it for you or you can go to a place like Sam's and they sell it in buckets already precolored and the buckets are already out so you don't have to ask them for it (well, all of the Sam's I've been to anyway).

At my Sams Club you have to go to the bakery and ask for it. Be sure you get the but r cream and not the bettercreme.

She said she wanted the light fluffy texture, she might just want the whipped icing. I think I would confirm with the bride which kind she is talking about.

I'm sure I sound like an old grump, but if I don't make it I don't use it. I've had requests for the same kind of thing, I let them sample what I make and honestly it's a take it or leave it thing. I'm not willing to put my name and business card out on something that came in a bucket from Sam's.

Has this bride sampled what YOU make? Some people have a strange notion that all decorator's frostings are thick, heavy and overly sweet. Some people have never tasted a really good made-from-scratch frosting...they assume it's got to taste like the grocery store bakery or it's not good.

If they want grocery store icing they can buy their cake at the grocery store.

How did I miss that particular search, Mike?!! That would've answered all my questions I'm sure! icon_biggrin.gif ROFLOL

And yes, I would prefer to use my own recipe but maybe if I sample Sam's I can then try to recreate it? icon_twisted.gif Thanks for advice! [/quote]

I hate making whip cream frosting and cannot make it to save my life. The whip cream frosting that our local grocery store sells to me is sooooo yummy! And they make it in strawberry and chocolate... the chocolate taste like chocolate mousse! I use theirs and it's great for decorating. I would rather not go that route and make it myself, if only I was capable... it's my nemesis. lol
